    I just finished up a T-shirt quilt and accidentially spilled diet coke on it. It was a fountain drink but it has stained the t-shirts.

    Does any one know how I can get it out? I have been using water and club soda?

    I haven't cried that hard in a very long time.

    Thanks for you help!

    leave it to soak ( several hrs or over night)in the sink with oxyclean ( the powder works better rhan the spray)

    I have best luck with overnight soaking in BIZ.

    I did not prewash my fabric and they are very bright colors, will it bleed?

    Is the quilt completely done. If it is then get some shout color catchers and shout cleaner. Spray the spots and wash in the machine with a couple of color catchers on cold using the gentle cycle. Sorry this happened to you. Use a little detergent too.

    Sorry to hear about the mishap. Here's a thread about a similar problem.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-105268-2.htm

    If you have not pre-washed I would add some color catchers to the wash
    and I would avoid the dryer until I'm sure the stain is gone. Heat usually
    sets the stain permanently. Good luck.

    I have a friend who swears by Redi-Whip on coke and Kool aid stains.

    Try some peroxide on the stain.

    The above tips cover what I'd suggest. I just wanted I'm sorry this happened to you. I'm addicted to diet Coke, this is just waiting to happen to me.

    Try liquid dishwashing soap like Dawn. Put a little bit of soap on stain and then wash. Check stain before drying.
